Merlin in the Library (The Agency #2)
Merlin in the Library - Ada Maria Soto

This is an adorable little follow up to His Quiet Agent and a much appreciated insight into Martin's POV. Martin's still banged up from his ordeal and still had a long road to full recovery, but he's got Arthur, he's learning to take care of himself, and he's well enough to get back to the library for story hour with the kids. 


I wanted it to be about a hundred pages longer. :D *crossing fingers for another full-length book with these two*

cdp.pl wyłącza wirtualne półki - pobierz e-booki


Otrzymałem właśnie ze sklepu cdp.pl list z informacją, że należy pobrać wszystkie e-booki, gry, kody czy faktury, które są zgromadzone na wirtualnej półce przypisanej do konta. Po 30 kwietnia 2017 roku użytkownicy sklepu stracą dostęp do tych treści. Warto więc jak najszybciej zalogować się na swoje konto w cdp.pl i wykonać kopię zakupów. Zawsze warto wykonywać kopie zapasowe na własny użytek, a to jest moment, kiedy należy to zrobić. Bez względu na to, jak pewne są wirtualne chmury. Jak wykonać na przykład kopię księgozbioru w calibre, pisałem w tekście "Calibre - jak to jest zrobione? Kopia zapasowa katalogu e-booków i ustawień programu".


List z cdp.pl informujący o likwidacji wirtualnych półek


W rozmowie telefonicznej z infolinią, otrzymałem potwierdzenie tej informacji. Nie udało mi się jednak uzyskać wyjaśnień na temat tego, jak będzie np. wyglądał zakup e-booków po wspomnianej dacie 30 IV. Konsultant, z którym rozmawiałem, stwierdził że sklep będzie nadal funkcjonował. Czyżby nam się szykowała jakaś fuzja na rynku?



Rzeczywiście, została zapowiedziana fuzja sklepów cdp.pl oraz merlin.pl. Świat czytników wskazuje na źródło tej informacji.



Użytkownicy cdp.pl otrzymali kolejny list, tym razem z informacją, że wirtualna półka będzie dostępna również po przejęciu sklepu przez merlin.pl. Nie oznacza to jednak, że wszystkie produkty pozostaną na półce po zmianie właściciela sklepu, ponieważ to cdp. pl był operatorem licencji.

Chasing Merlin
Chasing Merlin - Sarah White

What a great book! I loved it and Dyllan. I wish I could meet her in real life because we could get along so famously. :) I didn't care for Emrys, but I loved his opinions on various takes of the Merlin legend. He thinks the BBC Merlin series got it wrong, but if so, I am glad they did. Their take on Gwen and Lancelot is so much better, and I love Merlin. Fun to see a mention of such a marvelous series.

The Fire of Merlin (The Return to Camelot #2) by Donna Hosie
The Fire of Merlin - Donna Hosie
The Fire of Merlin starts where Searching For Arthur finished. Natasha is racing towards Bedivere, her world once again in its rightful place now that he is back in time! Of course, in time in this phrase means quite literally that, as he has moved through from his time to hers. So we start off quite humorously as the Knights of the Round Table try to fit in with modern life. We also get another glimpse of Natasha's home life, which isn't so good. Before too long, we are heading back into the past, to fight for the future. 
This book is once again extremely well written, with comments and snarks completely in keeping with a 17-year-old, and her relationship with her older brother. The made up insults with Guenivere had me laughing out loud, whilst other parts of it had me welling up. Natasha doesn't have an easy ride of it again, but she is strong and resilient, and is determined to fight for those she loves. 
With a smooth and flowing pace, the plot is never confused about where it is going or which time it is in, which makes for excellent reading. There were no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt the reading flow. A wonderful addition to the series, and highly recommended by me.

The Crystal Cave – Section 2: The Falcon
The Crystal Cave - Mary Stewart

The Crystal Cave Section 2 – The Falcon covers the adolescence of Myrddin Emrys.  His years from 12 to 18 were spent in Less Britain (aka Brittany) in the household of the exiled Ambrosius

who it is revealed is his father

(spoiler show)

This section is again mostly stage setting, though there are a few memorable visions, most notably the vision of Ambrosius slaying the white bull and those following the encounter with human sacrifice at the hands of arch-druid Belasius.  


 My reading experience improved after I summoned a copy of the book from the library with larger type than the paperback I started with. I can see how the allusions to pre-Christian religions would have titillated the teenage me during my first reading, but as a more mature reader I’m finding The Crystal Cave somehow flat.  Not sure how much of that is the book and how much is from my emotional state following the US election.  


My gut sense is that the original schedule would have had us finishing The Crystal Cave this week.  I’m unlikely to do so, as I’ve been alternating sections of The Crystal Cave with several other reads, but will keep going even if the buddy read has officially moved on to Volume 2.
